Promising signs from equality roadshow

 

Golf Australia’s female engagement senior manager Chyloe Kurdas has completed an exhaustive 12-month series of roadshow presentations at golf clubs with overwhelmingly positive results around gender equality in clubs.

Kurdas, who has presented in every state as part of GA’s Vision 2025 female participation program, said the feedback through surveys was “overwhelmingly positive, even more so than I thought they’d be”.

But she has warned that the process was long-term, adding that “it’s a seven-year project for a reason”.

Kurdas pointed out that barely 20 per cent of Australian golfers are female. “You can’t change 60,000 years of gender inequality in a sexy two-year strategy, and put it on a piece of paper,” she said.
